Correspondence. BUTCHER'S GULLY ROAD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 6 October 1922
Correspondence. BUTCHER'S GULLY ROAD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER - Sir,-I quite; agree with " Unfortuna'e User " re the. Butcher's Gully road. It is in a deplorable state, worse than I have seeon it, although thbere is plenty of coarse gravel alongside it; While the State is bringing in new andt inexperienced settlers' from overseas, our own. people are confronted with such bad-roads; which means-so much to them that it mabyt cases they are leaving their holdings after years of strenuous toil. This should not, be, and the roads have a deal to do with it, as they are the life blood of the country.--Yours, etc.. -ANOTHER UNFORTUNATE IUSER.
BOWLING GREEN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 6 October 1922
BOWLING GREEN. TO THI EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISBR Sir,--I was glad to see that our live cur respondent to your paper has given a hint that a bowling green is wanted for Eltharn. Any place that is worth living in requires places for recreation, and bowls has now become part of the life of so many men that the town that does not possess a green fails to attract many desirable residents, As Eltham is destined to becomie an outer suburban residential area it behoves those who are interested in its welfare to see what can be done to procure a piece of land for a green before the values become ficti .tious. Hoping some abler pen than mine will take this up.-Yours, &c., OLD BOWLER.

Your correspondent is equally astray when he enters the realm of figures. By adding to the shire's ordinary account the amount owing on loans he makes out to his own satisfaction a balance-sheet in favour of the North Riding. That system would not be open to much objection if the North Riding loan debts were included, but they are not. I remember...
THE WHEEL TAX. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 6 October 1922
THE WHEEL TAX. TO TIN EDITOR 07 TEM ADTERTISEB. Sir,-?o.. reply -to .ydur correspondent, "Look before you leap," he is not properly seized of the po'siion':i;e the Wheel Tax , r the incidence thereof.' The proposed tax m'ust not be collected utiless.the road used is" withili twent3y miles of a main arterial road. Of' the money derived from the tax one-half is given to the municipalities fair bye roads,- the other half to be expended on the main roads of the shires' where it:is col lected.

TheWheel Tax is a fair tax, as the man who uses the road pays for it: provided that the Minister gives the money, to each shire that raises it ; but I am certain if the proposal is base, ...
SUNDAY GAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 6 October 1922
SUNDAY GAMES. Sir,-It was quite refreshing to read our young friend (Mr C. T. Harris') letter in your last issue re games on Sunday. Whilst not claiming to be particularly straight laced, I draw the line at any semblance of a Continental Sabbath in this fair land of ours, and, personally, I deplore the steps that are being taken to get the thin end of the wedge in towards that result. The Almighty laid down his law first in Genesis 2 ohap. and 2nd verse when he ended his work, and in the 3rd verse he sanctified it frcm work; and from the 8th to the 11th verses of Exodus, the 20th chap. the law is distinctly laid down-" Thou shalt not do work." Of course, unless compulsory or necessary to do. I would like to point out that irrespective of the Christian aspect of the question what a boon the day of rest is to a man or his dependants physically, let alone any other way. Let those who ad vocate the Continental Sabbath or its like, pause and think where does the rest come in? If you are ...

PROPOSED NEW SHIRE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 6 October 1922
PROPOSED NEW SRIRE. TO THE RDITOR OF TUH ADVERTIGBR. Sir,-In your issue of 29th September you give us what I hope is only the first of a series of leading articles on a subject of real and pressing importance. The agita tion for anewnhire died down some years ago when it was understood that the policy ot the Government of the day was against the creation of new shires at that particular time. Now that the matter has been re rived, it is to he hoped that it will not be allowed to drop till something is done. The subjeot will he discussed by the Panton Hill Progress Association on Saturday, 14th inst., and the result of that decision com municated to yon. What we require, to start with, is authoritative information as to the wishes of the rutepayers of the dis tricts which it is proposed to combine into a new shire. A thing of this magnitude cannot be oarried through without a solid body of public opinion behind it.-Yours, &c., D. RODGER.

Whittlesea Exhibit. First. AT THE ROYAL SHOW. When you say that .'a district is self-contained, that it can produce all. that man and beast require to eat, sand iii addition can niake a show of beautiful wood and wool as well, it doesn't convey a great deal to the outsider, but when you see it artisti cally displayed, as was'the case with the Whittlesea Agricultural Society's exhibit at the Royal Show in Mel liourne last week, then it dawns on the visitor that it is one of the rich est.districts in the State ; in fact, all the pictures on a seedsman's cata logdri could be seen in reality at this fine exhibit. For the fifth time in succession the honors have gone to Whittlesea, the total number of points being 857 out of a possible 1000. Bacchus Marsh was second with 819., and Sale next -with 6073.

NATIONAL WEALTH IN SUGAR. Australian Industry for Australian People. No. 4. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 6 October 1922
NATIONAL WEALTH IN SUGAR. Australian Industry for Australian a People. ,j No. 4. Directly and indirectly the sugar in dustry adds to the wealth of every sec tion in thes community, and stimulates in varying degrees every enterprise. No particular knowledge is required to understand the immense advantage of growing our own sugar by our own labour instead of sending £10,000,000 abroad every year in buying from for eign corporations for spending else where. That great amount of money, the interest on £200,000,000, is now spent in Australia for the benefit of everybody who has labour or goods to sell. The sugar fields stretch from north ern New South Wales to the far north of Queenmland. As the Australian population increases they can be ex tended to cater fo'r the greater pub lic needs. The wealth won from these districts is distributed over the whole of the Commonwealth. There are refineries in Brisbane, Mel bourne, Sydney, Adelaide, and elsewhere, giving direct employ ment to the peo...

UNSIGHTLY PLACES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 6 October 1922
UN4IGHTLY PLACES. TO THB EDITOR OF THI ADYERTIBER Sir,-1 have noticed in the columns of your paper on several occasions some com ment on unsiuhtly buildings in Eltham, and while I quite agree that something should be done to remove the same, I wish to bring under the notice of the powers that he another speck on the piottresque canvas of our town. I am told it has been there fr,m time immemorial, and no one baq yet rushed into print about it. They say "fools ru h in where argels fear to tread," and per haps I am the fool, but I do it in the in terests of the town, and on the suggestion of many visitors. I refer to a little enclosure just up the street at the side of the hotel it is neither exposed nor hidden from view. Perhaps the owner would have it removed when he knows that it is adversely com mented on, and its purpose could eisily be served in another part of the adjoining pro party.--Yours, &c., G RANDPA.

Correspondence, RATING M M.B W. LANDS. TO THle EDITOR OF THE ADVEBTI5ln. Sir,-T'bh people of Kinglake West think it is timp. for all interested in the demand for new roads to take an active nart-in as sistirrg Mr W. Everard in his endeavor to get his bill thr.ugvh Parliament, taxing all land held by the Melbourne and Metropoll tan Hoard of Works. All ratepayers growl at the state of the roads, and all councillors state that they would like to give ratepay ers hotter roads, only funds are short. Now here is. a practical way of increasing tha council's revenue, and I trust that the coun cillors and all ratepayers will do all in their power to heln make this bill effective. In our opinion we owe a debt of thanks to Mr D. 1Murphy for his activity in connection with this matter. Some little time ago I wrote to the M.M3.B W. asking them to re pair a portion of the road from Kinglake Weat to Whittlesea. This road is included in the M.M.R.W. water shed, and is in such a state that there hav...
